Hepatitis B: Highly unlikely. Hep B is a bloodborne virus and transmission from an infected person to someone else requires some exchange of blood.

The shingles vaccine in effect gives you an invisible (we call it "subclinical") case of chickenpox, in order to stimulate production of antibodies to the virus in your body. Although some dispute this, at least some people appear to be contagious for chickenpox for a week or so after receiving the vaccine. ...Read more
Very unlikely: The virus does not survive well under these conditions, and even swallowing semen (in the big studies i've seen) is very unlikely to transmit the disease -- not that it is a good idea. You won't find a study to prove the safety of eating contaminated food since this rarely happens in real life. Any doubts, ask your physician about a pcr assay. ...Read more
